John Garton, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Liberal Arts, has authored a book, Grace & Grandeur: The Portrait of Paolo Veronese, analyzing the work of this Venetian Renaissance artist.
For Immediate Release: April 1, 2008
Grace & Grandeur: The Portraiture of Paolo Veronese (Turnhout, Belgium & London: Brepols Publishers, 2008) offers the first comprehensive study of the approximately forty portraits by Paolo [Caliari] Veronese (1528-1588).
Shedding new light on early works, such as the pendants of the Da Porto and the frescos of the Barbaro in the Palladian villa at Maser, Dr. Garton also examines Paolo’s images of women within the larger polemics surrounding the anonymous beauties of Giorgione, Palma il Vecchio, and Titian. Dr. Garton analyzes Veronese’s innovations in marital portraiture, melancholic portrayals of artists and nobility, and evocations of the antique. Relevant issues of social history, class insecurity, and poetic convention are all brought to bear in deciphering the meanings of these images and what they reveal about the painter and his clientele. A complete catalogue of Veronese’s portraits follows the chapters.
